with the campaign to try and sabotage the u.n. bid -- the palestinian u.n. bid and also as a ploy for ection -- for garnering votes for upcoming elections. for the incumbent government. the fact of the matter is, when i spoke with people on the ground today in the south, these are the constituents that would primarily vote for prime minister netanyahu and right now they're not very happy with him and many, many people said they're withdrawing their vote in the coming election, that they will not be voting for his likud party. they're unhappy with the fact that there was a pullback from a full-scale invasion. people living in the south who, again, have been through this situation and scenario for years and years wanted to see a ground invasion. they wanted -- they said they wanted to see -- some people said they wanted to see gaza flattened. they said they wanted to seeed things taken to the end. they weren't certain what that meant. when pushed to the wall, what does that mean, taking this situation to the end? they weren't really certain really what that meant. but, again, this could be som
be disqualifying if obama decides to choose her as the next secretary of state. she's the ambassador to u.n. she's not in charge of intelligence and not in charge of intelligence reports. it is simultaneously true they scrub the reports she got of any al qaeda mention. that was probably done within the intelligence community herself. her job as u.n. ambassador was to tell what that intelligence report said on the sunday shows and that's what she did. i don't think there's any reason to disqualify her based on anything that's happened in the last year. and, frankly, i guess i'd cut her a little slack for some of the political attacks she's taken. i guess i don't agree with graham and mccain on this one. but if you're going to be a diplomat, you should probably be diplomatic all the way around. ( laughter ) you're going to come in for a little criticism. >> benghazi has almost taken on a yalta fascination, who lost china. it seems to-- there's no question there are legislate questions about yet security was so inadequate, but the idea that this was some master conspiracy hatched in some foreign
's ambassador to the u.n. failed to mollify senate critics today on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. susan rice met with republican senators who've criticized her for saying-- five days after the attack-- that anti-american protests were to blame. in fact, u.s. officials already knew it was a terrorist strike. today, rice blamed faulty intelligence. but senator lindsey graham said he was unimpressed. bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before that the 16 september explation about how four americans died in benghazi libya by ambassador rice i think does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. >> sreenivasan: graham, along with senators mccain and ayotte, have said they'll oppose rice if she's nominated to be secretary of state. but independent senator joe lieberman also met with rice today, and he said he was satisfied with her explanation of events. >> i found her statements to be significant. she was just as clear and absolute as she could be that she based her testimony and her statements on sunday morning televisi

't need pithy sayings to keep my heart ray up. >> good morning everybody. u.n. ambassador susan rice is meeting with senators john mccain lindsey graham and kelly iop. they have been critical of her remarks in the aftermath of benghazi. she described that as a spontaneous attack based on the in tell she had from the intelligence community. there could be some substance to the plan that president obama plans to nominate her for secretary of state. she will meet with other lawmakers later this week. president obama has been unwaiving in his support of her calling republican attacks on her outrageous. >> according to official announcement, the president of mexico and the president plan to talk about economic development and bored concerns. while there is no second sit down scheduled for the president and congressional leaders he did speak to john boehner and harry reid over the weekend about avoiding the fiscal cliff. the president will meet with small business owners today. tomorrow he meets with middle class americans who would be affected by tax hikes and more business leaders. frida
're calling, you know, secretary rice -- u.n. ambassador rice, i'm sorry, some kind of angry black woman. well, i have been in that position before and it's simply untenable. it's the kind of language we don't want to see imbued in this conversation. it really ought to be about the facts of the matter of what happened in benghazi, when that information came out, how well it is communicated to the american public, and when it should be, i should say, communicated to the american public because they're for good reason we aren't privy to classified information, but if she had gone on air and broken with the intelligence community and released classified information, if she had broken with them, then she would be frog marched out of the bounds of d.c. today. >> yes. dana, you have just been thrashed, so i have to give you an opportunity to respond. >> yeah. i'm a little surprised because what i wrote in the column was exactly what i said to you just now, there are plenty of reasons to object to her being made secretary of state but benghazi not being one of them. so i think she's got the facts a l
-800-345-2550 will help you get started today. >>> the outcome of meetings between u.n. ambassador susan rice and gop senators intent on undermining her may not be so important after all. because just moments ago she was given the only endorsement that may matter. >> susan rice is extraordinary. couldn't be prouder of the job she's done. >> a round of applause from the cabinet. we're joined with a round of applause by msnbc executive editor richard wolffe and jonathan capehart. the gop keeps saying there are more questions but they don't appear to be any more answers that susan rice can give. if she keeps going at this rate she's going to get to all 45 gop senators, republican senators, by christmas. >> right. the reason she can't give more answers -- she can always talk about this thing, but the subject matter is really limited here. and either the republican senators who are finding it hard to follow or maybe the viewers of another cable news channel who have lost all track of what this story is about, the questions are about her performance on a group of sunday talk shows. the real story should be

as the u.n. is prepared to help facilitate all efforts in this regard. but people are dying every day and cities are being targeted every day. this humanitarian crisis is growing exponentially. we need a ceasefire now. followed immediately by negotiations on the underlying issues. the crisis underscores that the status quo is unsustainable and the solutions must be found to the problems of gaza and palestinians as a whole. core elements of the security council resolution remain unimplemented. once is fully restored and the violence ends, the cease-fire will have to address the underlying causes, including a fall opening of [indiscernible] and an end to weapons smuggling. it is clear the international community must speak with one voice to prevent a return to violence. i plan to keep in touch with leaders and i have asked my special coordinator to remain in cairo to support the efforts to achieve a sustainable cease- fire. finally, mr. president, let me conclude, as i have in all my discussions with intensity, that in these testing times, we must not lose sight that peace must remain o
